New crematorium

Works to build a new crematorium in Loures, Lisbon, began this week, making it the first crematorium within the city.

The project is part of a four million euro cemetery complex in Lisbon with the crematorium, due to be completed within six months, accounting for almost 800,000 euros of this budget.

President of Loures Câmara, Carlos Teixeira, said: “There are few cities with such a large investment in these types of facility. You can be assured that we will be providing a respectful area for all citizens.”
